India ranked world No.1 in mobile broadband usage: Mukesh Ambani

 

"Just one year back, India was ranked 150th in the world for mobile broadband. Now it is number one, after the launch of Jio," Ambani said here at the HT Leadership Summit. "Today, Indians consume more mobile broadband data than users in USA and China. If data is destiny, new India is well and truly ready for its new tryst with destiny."

Talking about the economy, the Ambani said India could triple its growth from the current GDP of $2.5 trillion to $7 trillion in the next ten years and upgrade its rank from number six to the third largest economy in the world. "Can we triple it (GDP) to $7 trillion in the next ten years and become the third largest economy in the world? Yes, we can," Ambani asserted.

"Thirteen years ago, when I spoke here, India was a $500 billion economy. And I said in 2004, that India would be a $5 trillion economy in twenty years. Today that prediction seems certain. Indeed, it will be achieved well before 2024," said Ambani.

Stressing on the point that energy and technology have been the key drivers of human progress, Ambani said to emerge as a global power, a country has to embrace new technologies.

"No country has ever emerged as a global power, without embracing new technologies whole-heartedly... and without using new-generation energy sources widely," said Ambani.

"The Fourth Industrial Revolution is now upon us. The foundation of this revolution is connectivity, computing, data and artificial intelligence," he added.
